Read This First

My first introduction to Haygood's The Man of Galilee came in a class in Christian evidences taught by Homer Hailey in the mid-1950s. A few years later I located a copy of the book and published a reprint edition in 1963. The entire book, with the original and reprint dedication, is published here.

After reading the Dedication and Prefatory, I suggest you start with the first chapter and read the entire book in order. It is brief. Ferrell Jenkins
